Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on my family genealogy since I was in grade school. It's a fascinating hobby that really gets its hooks into you.

I am retired from both the Army and the Diplomatic Service, currently living in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania.

You are welcome to use any information, including photos, that I have posted on Findagrave.

Christopher Becker
Hi Stephen
It's been awhile since I last contacted you, but thanks for all the work you put in on Find A Grave, especially for the Gorsline family.

By way of re-introduction, I'm Christopher 'Chris' Becker.
My grandma was Mary Leone Gorsline Becker, sister of your grandad, whom I knew in my childhood as Uncle Elmer.

When I was in 5th grade, 1969-1970, I lived in Hesperia with my grandparents Jess and Leone Becker. Great Uncle Elmer would visit us often, since Lancaster is not far away. He was very tall and thin and he brought me boxes of polished lapidary rocks. He had a few bolo ties he'd made himself from the polished stones.

RE: Ira and Betsey Savage
You're welcome. Yes, you may use the photo's. I added a second one for Ira B. that is a bit easier to read.

I changed the place of death because I found his death certificate in the Rhode Island deaths at Family Search. org Rhode Island, Deaths and Burials, 1802-1950," Database, FamilySearch ( : accessed 18 June 2015), Harold Blanchard White, 19 Jan 1938; citing Providence, Rhode Island, reference CN 201; FHL microfilm 1,954,624.

RE: Donovan Headstone
You're very welcome. In the same lot, there was also a grave/headstone for Mary C Polling, who died July 17, 2000 at 94 years, 2 months, 20 days. Not sure if she is connected to the Donovans. I have a copy of the cemetery lot card and a picture of her headstone, as well, if you are interested. I have no problem with you using the pictures in Ancestery.

You can reach me at

Samuel Heyser
Hello Stephen,

Thank you for trying to find Samuel's headstone and letting me know he doesn't have one. I removed my request.

I appreciate your time and I'm sorry to send you on a wild goose chase Stephen.

Have a beautiful week!

Thank you, Tina

Victor and Frances Kline
Hello, Stephen,

First, thank you for the edits!

Second, I apologize for the delay in responding to them. Sometimes life gets in the way.

Third, I see you have a lot of Kline memorials, flowers, etc. So, are Victor and Frances your relatives? I have Klines in my family, so, when I saw their stones I took photos just in case. Although I found how Victor relates to others in my genealogy, he is not at all close (and his family does not appear to be the same one as my known Kline relatives). If you would like to manage these memorials, I would be more than happy to transfer them. It is my firm belief that people should be with someone - anyone - who knows them, and I love to see folks "go home."

Thanks, again, and take care.

Surely you didn't think a 173 year old baby marker was still readable and in existence?
Source for this was a very old transcript by Bill Floyd . It might also be located in the WPA transcipts of NC.

Seems we have discussed this before.

John M. Donovan
Stephen, I inquired at the Hope Cemetery office yesterday if John M. Donovan, Elizabeth's husband and Marion's father, is buried there. Unfortunately, the office has no record of him being buried anywhere in Hope Cemetery.

Good luck with your continued search for his final resting place.
